People are more important than stories. Stories are meant to inform us, build us up, teach us, entertain, etc. It's been like that since the beginning of time. If you can give people a type of armor that only exists because they're strengthened by the story you've told them then you're doing it right. If you haven't understood that by now then that is the reason for your discomfort. Idiocy. Read more.

You know wha annoys me about stuff like this sometimes?
No, not the fact that there are gay characters. Also not that people are talking about such things.
What annoys me is that somehow people nowadays seem to build their whole identity on wether or not they like vag or dick, or both, and the fact that especially the latter two are apparently No.1 marketing arguments for these specific groups.
Whenever I read stuff like these twitter posts I am not thinking “oh no, gay”, I am thinking “OMG, who the hell cares?” How come it is important?
Every time I start an Ubisoft game I am greeted with their diversity text that the game was made by people with a lot of sexual orientations and gener identities, but why does that matter anyway? Why should anyone care what the other’s inmost personal sexual life is like?
This world is just becoming harder and harder for me to understand.

Some people are so shallow that their gender, race and/or sexual orientation make up the whole of their identity. I wouldn't be so salty about it but those hypocrites still have the nerve to call me shallow for not being attracted to fat people.

You just lack the mental acuity to make sense of it. If you had the testicular fortitude to be honest with yourself, you would understand the simplicity of those words.

Beyond dumb, and completely meaningless since it serves NO FUCKING PURPOSE in a looter shooter game where you interact with either of these characters for less then an hour of screen time between the two of them in the HISTORY of Destiny. These writers need to get over themselves with wanting to force their shit into holes that weren't designed for it

Holy shit, homophobe alert much?

You’ve failed to make any kind of counter point.

The issue at hand is telling everyone what set of genitals these fictional characters want to hump — it’s irrelevant and not useful. It’s the worst kind of virtue signaling, and Bungie engages in this arbitrary nonsense constantly in a desperate last gasp for any kind of cultural relevance. It’s repugnant.

Could they maybe tell us something more particular and interesting about the development of these characters themselves? If your idea of interesting is investigating the sexual proclivity of fictional space aliens than you may want to broaden your scope of interests.

Wait, destiny has a story?

Prepare destiny 3 to be borderlands 3.
Destiny always had a lot of lore, the problem was just that in D1 it was all only available online and not in game.
In D2 the grimoire is available in game and there is so much.

That would mean the game promote transphobia and need to be banned

Thats what the nutjob from the other place usually think
All right, so do you have to be good to be gay or are you always good if you are gay? What if you created gay Hitler, could the universe sustain such a creation?

I really, really dislike this new trend of devs going on twitter to add info about characters.

It's a clear sign of shitty writers. Everything important about characters should be communicated through the actual story. If you can't do that, it is not worth mentioning.

Also, we don't need to be spoon fed fucking everything. Some mystery and grey area is ok.

Up until the point where bad storytellers explain their bad writing on twitter, your work is open for interpretation, and stronger for it.

I don't give a shit who you are, or who you fuck. You don't interest me that much. I care what you do.

Those characters have absolutely no presence, personality or nuance in the game. They're hyped up by other NPCs as noteworthy and they do nothing. Nothing. The little dialogue you have with them could have been written by a high school student in an afternoon. They are complete non-entities. There are lore entries on any number of guns that have more story and depth.

But I'll bite. Hey Bungie, put your money where your fake ass twitter marketing is: have them kiss in game. I dare you.

You remember the point in the DLC where we went back through time to save Saint 14 because he was dead? Oh Osiris told us to do it to stop the Vex and we used his time machine. Never at any point did he mention anything suggesting he might have other motives for bringing him back or getting him.

Then once he is back the dudes don't even hang out in the same area or do anything together.

Oh wait now they are gay lovers and have been for centuries........

Yeah, right here.

I am totally ok with this, but the plot and characters of Destiny were simply not memorable whatsoever.
You should visit DTG reddit. According to fans the story is what is carrying this franchise...which is just hilarious.
Destiny Campaigns are bad campaigns period.

There are some okay characters imo, Zavala(mostly because his VA), Shaxx, Drifter, Mara, Calus and maybe Iron Banner Man. At least Variks is back, though his lines were better in D1 Prison of Elders, Cayde was just cringe with his tryhard jokes, especially in the 1st Forsaken mission.

Ah I see. I only played the first and remember I had to use my phone to read the lore.

They should focus into actually making a worthwhile narrative for their game rather than pandering to SJW that doesn’t even play games

Agree totally. These fucking people are dense as fuck. If this is an important character trait (or relevant), then it is conveyed either through visual or narrative design. The fact that no one knew this about the character means how superfluous the information is, but it also hints at a more sinister point. We have now reached a place where character design and narrative is so flat and lifeless that months later someone can go on twitter and proclaim their characer is gay or whatever.

Is that really giving the LGBTQ community strong characetrs and storylines? Or is it just fishing for likes and retweets? This character is so insipid that they've been able to suddenly conjure up this factoid and everyone is like 'meh'. Unless they are hoping the harmful stereotype of gays = feathers was just missed. That's the opposite of a strong identity imo. If anything, the LGBTQ community are being used here to inflate and fellate shady writers who want to feel their character actually left an impact. Osiris from Destiny, my ass. There's nothing he'd like more than my ass.

Storytelling is one of the most important abilities, to entertain someone through narrative has been used since the beginning of civilization, you can't have good characters without a good story.

I do stand up, and if an audience doesn't like the joke/story i'm telling they won't like me or my stance on the the subject I present. It takes a lot more than an interesting character to keep someone watching.

I think your political mindset is corrupting your creative mindset. This is used to much on internet forums as a defence mechanism, and it's embarrassing for those individuals.

Whats thats... the developer has come out to announce that in fact the characters where both gay all along (except since he didn't create them, maybe not) on twitter.

Solid writing 10/10 might want to you know... actually add that to the game rather than just leaving a single vague hint before immediately going to twitter to congratulate yourself for your own wokeness.

Whats next? a twitter post revealing that the Destiny 2 player base was gay all along? With the hint being only an utter faggot would still be playing this pile of "games as a service" trash.

No my NPC friend. Wanting the developers to put their focus on creating a good game with a good story and good lore FIRST instead of doing the uninteresting shitfest that is Destiny1+2 because they are wasting resources and time to pander a group of people that doesn't give a fuck about the game just to get social points on twitter is NOT being homophobe. Is having a realistic way of understanding "how to create a good story and lore and where to put your focus".
